Well, the nomikai on Friday was a rousing success. I had a great time. The party was fun. Found out that Matsumoto is either divorced or separated from her husband (I love when I’m let in on g...

Loose in 2016

Really, I’m losing more and more connections. It’s taken me a long time, but things are breaking down. I feel more and more isolated, more and more out of touch, more and more out of reach. I l...

On this day in 2016

On this day, January 29th, in the US, January 30th in Japan, Amanda got engaged. I’ve mixed feelings to put it mildly. I feel that a book I hadn’t quite finished is now gone forever. So much to...

January 28th-29th in 2016

January 28th and 29th Well, Matsumoto sensei didn’t need me for anything yesterday, which worked well. Though I did have to do a bit more grading. I did get nearly 10K steps in (finished it as ...

January 23rd through 28th in 2016

Saturday the 23rd was a fairly dull day. The only thing that happened of note was my guitar lesson. And the blizzard. I hadn’t been able to practice all week, due to feeling so ill, and was dre...

January 20th-22nd in 2016

The demo at Eshin went well enough. I ganbatte’d it like woah, and I even impressed Matsumoto, which is not a thing that generally happens. Really, though, my teacher was the star. I just foll...

January 19th and 20th in 2016

January 19th and 20th Well, having worked through third period, and ALT’d a class for Inori Sensei, I went home. I was a wreck. I’d barely eaten dinner the night before, and I’d not been able ...

January 15th through 19th in 2016

Friday night I had tea ceremony. It wasn’t particularly good, but it wasn’t particularly bad, which is better than it was for a long time. Nothing’s really changed in class. I’ve mostly change...

What Changed in 2016

Last night, I had a really nice talk with a Singaporean JET named Jessica. She’s struggling with life in Japan in some ways. I told her a little bit about me and about my story. How much of it...

January 13th through 15th in 2016

The night of the 13th was suitably dull. I managed to get my exercise in, plus Eikaiwa, and guitar. So far so good on week one. It feels like it’s been longer, and I don’t know if that’s good ...

January 12th and 13th in 2016

January 12th and 13th Yesterday was a very productive day. I wrote quote a bit in prosebox, I studied quite a bit on Anki, I went for a long walk, I cleaned the house a bit, I stayed under my ca...

Feelings in 2016

Let’s talk about them. At times, I lie awake and am just overcome with certain sensations. Feelings of powerlessness are overwhelming at times. I remember, in sixth grade, I went to a party at ...

Star Trek in 2016

I wish, I really wish, that I had watched Star Trek TNG when Amanda told me to twelve years ago. I wish I had watched it at an even younger age, to be honest. When I think of television shows w...


Good song. Check it out. This year is not a good year. I’m going to be thirty. I’m living in the ass crack of Japan. I’m broke, I’m fat, I’ve not accomplished literally anything I had hoped ...


Sadly, this is going to be a break in the usual list of what I’ve done. I can’t give day by day accounts as my vacation was so long and dull that very little of note or merit really took place o...

December 18th through 22nd in 2015

Well, the weekend came and went, like so many a terrible boyfriend, and I’ve stories to tell of it, like many a terrible girlfriend. Friday evidently happened as I have distinct memories of Satu...

December 16th through 18th in 2015

In looking back over my last entry, I’m amazed at how it feels like it was in a different world. Such is life, one supposes. The 16th finished without anything of particular note happening. I’m...

December 15th and 16th in 2015

Yesterday, the 15th, went rather dully. As was to be expected. I had no classes, and relatively few notebooks to grade, which wasn’t a bad deal. I got a lot of work done on the role playing ga...

December 9th through 15th in 2015

December 9th through 15th. It’s strange to think that it’s been a week since I updated. Well, nearly. Let’s fix that. On the 9th I had Ebihara Sensei, which was dull. I don’t remember much of...

December 4-9 in 2015

These entries are getting further and further apart, and I don’t like it. It reflects poorly on my mental state. Which, as my readers are by now aware, is not so great to begin with. Still, th...

December 2nd through 4th in 2015

Before I get any further, I want to mention something briefly. It was a small thing, it shouldn’t bother me. It really shouldn’t. But it does and it is. Last night, on Tinder, I superliked a g...

December 1st through 2nd in 2015

Well, yesterday things got a bit better, though not a great deal. I still feel awful about most everything, but it’s not so oppressive. I have found, for some dumb reason, that nicotine tends t...


Yesterday I went home sick. Due to a scheduling error, I had no classes, and I felt terrible. I came into the office, corrected a stack of notebooks, and asked if I could be allowed to go to th...


November 29, 2015

24th through the 30th in 2015

I’m struggling to remember much of what happened. Nothing of note happened on Tuesday, though I was slightly improved by the end of the day. Physically. I didn’t clean much or exercise, though...
